Know your current COVID-19 status

To help you travel more safely, we have partnered with Southend Airport to set up a COVID-19 testing station. For certain destinations you will need to visit the airport for a test 72hrs before your scheduled flight. You will then need a negative COVID-19 result before you are fit to fly.

Our test will provide you with a Fit-To-Fly Certificate.

The testing station is not exclusive to those travelling out of Southend Airport. Book a COVID test if you need a negative result for work or simply for peace of mind.
